I agree this should be fixed.  The conversion to float in the else 
clause seems wrong to me: it can lose precision, making two unequal 
values compare equal.  I also agree that we should be getting 
NotImplemented here.

Do you have a patch available?

As an aside, I'm interested that you're implementing comparisons between 
mpf and Decimal;  how does that work?  Do you also implement binary 
arithmetic operations between mpf and Decimal?  What's the result type?
